    No. That card is a PC card, and you need a Mac-compatible one. Right now your choices are flashing a 3870 (don't know if anyone's done that), a 4870, or a 4890, or buying a 4870 directly from Apple (it does work, it just isn't supported by Apple).

    You will have to get the "Mac & PC" version of the card. That's the one that will work in the Mac Pro.
